Verizon, Centurylink top SIP provider ranking (Bill Horne)

An individual's self-concept is the core of his personality. It affects every aspect of human behavior: the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change. A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life.

Subject: New iPhone Means We'll Soon Escape the Captivity of Carriers Message-ID: <0FF26C6B-659E-43B7-A97D-D9409D2A72BC@roscom.com> New iPhone Means We'll Soon Escape the Captivity of Carriers When Steve Perlman looks at the latest iPhones, he doesn't see the newfangled 3D Touch interface. He sees the fine print that lists all the wireless spectra these phones can talk to. The list is long, and it includes Band 39, the spectrum used by the unusually powerful wireless network Perlman and his company, Artemis Research, are building in the San Francisco Bay Area. The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are built to run on practically any network in the world, he says, and this means consumers soon will have the freedom to move between wireless carriers as they please. http://www.wired.com/2015/09/new-iphone-means-well-soon-escape-captivity-carriers/

Subject: Verizon, Centurylink top SIP provider ranking Message-ID: <20150919222916.GA8305@telecom.csail.mit.edu> by Katherine Finnell Tech Target Verizon and CenturyLink take the top two spots in an IHS Infonetics SIP trunking provider ranking of the top 10 providers in North America. Verizon is the top SIP trunking provider for the seventh year in a row, while CenturyLink claimed the number two spot for the first time, according to the latest SIP trunking provider scorecard from IHS Infonetics Research. IHS research director Diane Myers said Verizon claimed the top spot due to its large installed user base and strong financial stability. The provider has maintained its top ranking for the past seven years as it led development of enhanced capabilities, like bursting, she said. http://searchunifiedcommunications.techtarget.com/news/4500253774/Verizon-CenturyLink-top-SIP-trunking-provider-ranking -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly)
